I live in Shanghai and have been dating a Viet girl from Ho Chi Minh City for over a year. I don’t speak any Vietnamese, my Chinese is getting to intermediate level, she speaks a little English and no Chinese. After a lot of heartache in our respective lives, we found each other and have been getting along marvelously. On the very few occasions we have had an argument, it is usually when one of us has been impatient and forgotten the distinct chance language nuance has garbled what we were meaning to say. Thank g-d for the Wechat translation feature. Overall, we are learning great lessons about love and multi-cultural perspectives daily. It is also a testament to our commitment to each other because we don’t have the luxury of “perfect” understanding.
